CORONAVIRUS AND YOUNG LEADER TRAINING

Due to current restrictions on physical distancing we have suspended delivery of our regular programme until we receive further guidance from government / DfE and Youth Sports Trust. This will include,  Sports Crew & PhysiFUN Champions Training as well as My First Steps and the Gifted & Talented leadership academy.

In order to support the development of your pupils and to help provide intra school opportunities please see details of our new virtual Sports Organiser Squad training, available from the end of October 2020. 

You can also access the PhysiFUN at Home videos and PhysiFUN at Home cards which have been adapted so that the games can be delivered at home with minimal space or equipment.
